What Treatment Has Helped With Neuropathy?

What Treatment Has Helped With Neuropathy?

My doctor prescribed Gabapentin to help, but the neuropathy doesn’t seem much better. I am trying to build strength and not need a walker to get around since my hospital,stay for pneumonia, but the “pillow feet” make me uneasy. Both feet feel numb.
Has anyone found something that helps more with the neuropathy?

Does Anyone Experience Increased Lower Back Pain When In Remission?

Does Anyone Experience Increased Lower Back Pain When In Remission?

My husband was diagnosed in April of 2019 and went into remission within six months. His most recent (done 3 months ago) PET and Bone Marrow Biopsy showed no myeloma cells present anywhere. He has always experienced some lower back pain which he usually described as being 2 on a scale of 10, but recently he has complained of a lot more pain in the 5-6 range. His oncologist suspected a broken rib, so ordered an x-ray, but no broken ribs were showing. His oncologist suggested maybe going to… read more
